195^ 




'He builds too low who builds beneath the stars" 



Published by the 

CLASS OF "58 

Mount Everett Regional School 

Sheffield, Massachusetts 




DEDICATION 



We, the Class of 1958, are happy to dedicate this yearbook to Mrs. 
Barbara R. Rhoades whose sincere efforts on our behalf have helped us 
immeasurably to attain our scholastic level. Mrs. Rhoades has been able 
to instill into the daily routine a charming friendliness which has made 
the work so much easier and memorable. 



FOREWORD 



The Class of 1958 has chosen the solar system as its theme for THE AURIGAN. This 
seems most appropriate since the title of our yearbook is taken from a five star constel- 
lation, Auriga. Each of the five stars represents a township which together form the 
Southern Berkshire Regional School District. 

Edward Young's quotation, "He builds too low who builds beneath the stars," is our 
motto. We understand the motto to mean that one should aspire to the ultimate, above 
the stars. In order to succeed one must have an ambition and then be determined to at- 
tain it. At this time, too, space is in the news. Earth satellites, missiles, and rockets 
are having a profound effect upon all our lives; therefore, it is our aim to represent parts 
of the solar system in designs for the division pages as well as to carry out the theme in 
the class history and prophecy. 

The Senior Class would like to express their gratitude to Mr. May, who has designed 
the yearbook cover, and to Mr. Norton, who has contributed much time and effort to 
the yearbook by taking and developing photographs of various activities at Mount Everett.

IN MEMORY 



On January 30 of 1956 during our first year at Mount Everett, Richard 
O'Hara died as the result of an automobile accident. Dick was born in 
New Symrna Beach, Florida, on November 13, 1939, where he lived 
until his family moved to Mill River and finally to Monterey. Before 
coming to Mount Everett, Dick attended New Marlboro High School 
where he was captain of the junior varsity basketball team and pitcher 
on the baseball team. 



Well liked by his many friends, Dick was especially noted for his shy 
but genial ways. Dick had two opposite sides to his personality; he was 
both fun-loving and serious. In either frame of mind he always provided 
his classmates with good company. Dick's memory will stay with us al- 
ways.

CLASS HISTORY 



Our goal will finally be attained as we reach the North Star on Friday, 
June 13. Associating ourselves with the Big Dipper, it can be said that we 
have looked to this star as our guide. Now reminiscing, we can recall our 
past pleasurable experiences found in learning and in working with our friends. 

Wending a pathway towards our sophomore star, the Class of '58 consisted 
of individuals from the five stars: Alford, Egremont, Monterey, New Marl- 
boro, and Sheffield. Time was allotted to become acquainted with our new 
classmates before elections. Under the supervision of our class advisors, Mis. 
Alice Kettenhofen and Mr. James Shiminski, we selected: president, Tom 
Kradel; vice president, Tom Andrews; secretary, Sandra MacDarby; treasurer, 
Barbara Wilcox ; and Student Council representative, Ed Smith. 

Our class was saddened on January 30, 1956, by Dick O'Hara's death which 
was the result of an automobile accident. The social highlight of the year 
was our spring dance. Mary Lou Chapin represented Mount Everett Regional 
in the All-State Chorus at Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and also attended the 
Music Educator's National Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. 

In June of 1956 we had finally arrived at the sophomore star, but all too 
soon we began a new trek toward our next destination, successful completion 
of our junior year. Upon returning in September, we chose the following as 
our class officers: president, Tom Kradel; vice president, Jim Bunce; sec- 
retary, Elizabeth Schneck; treasurer, Barbara Wilcox; and Student Council 
representative, Ed Smith. The officers were assisted by Mrs. Jayne Arm- 
strong and Mr. Grank Merrigan. 

We Juniors gave the first dance of the school year. Receiving our class 
rings will be remembered as another step toward the North Star. The junior 
class was proud to have six of its members inducted into the Aurigan Chapter 
of the National Honor Society. Those initiated were: Mary Lou Chapin, 
Martha French, Tom Kradel, Helen Le Geyt, Elizabeth Schneck, and Bar- 
bara Wilcox. This was a very solemn occasion which made us think about 
the even more solemn one to come - graduation. 



Then came the two yearly proms, the Junior Prom and the Senior Farewell. 
The Senior Farewell, which we presented to the Class of 1957, has as its 
theme, "Harbor Lights. " A light house, boats, and nets were used to develop 
the motif of a fishing village. Lloyd Hoyt, Richard Pekrul, Ed Smith, Ted 
Somes, and Mary Lou Chapin were our delegates to Massachusetts Boys' State 
and Girls' State respectively. The Auiigan Fair presented by the Student 
Council culminated the social activities for 1957. Shortly we could expect 
to attain the North Star. 

Eager to start our last year at Mount Everett, for the last time we chose 
our class officers. They were: president, Tom Kradel; vice president, Frank 
Granger; secretary, Jean Peters; treasurer, Barbara Wilcox; and Student Coun- 
cil representative, Ed Smith. Mrs. Jayne Armstrong and Mr. Thomas Norton 
became our patient, hard working advisors. 

As seniors we have been involved in constant activity. On September 20 
we sponsored a dance, and then on the evenings of November 21 and 22 we 
presented the play, CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN. Taken from the book of the 
same name, CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN was greeted with great enthusiasm by 
the audience. 

The North Star has burned more brightly as we quickly approach the end 
of our senior year. Work on the yearbook gradually diminished, and members 
of the class even found time to participate in the Christmas assembly which 
included a satirical version of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas. " 

Janet Olsen received the Daughters of the American Revolution award, and 
Joan Hall was voted by the student body to represent Mount Everett at Good 
Government Day. Both Mary Lou Chapin and Martha French acted as repre- 
sentatives for the A 11 -State Chorus. 

With still a few months to go before arriving at the North Star, we made 
plans for the Junior Prom, Class Night, and Graduation Exercises. 

After graduating, each member of the 1958 Graduation Class will strive to 
attain his own star, his ambition in life. 



CLASS PROPHECY 



Each succeeding year the Aurigan Fair at Mount Everett has grown into a larger and 
more tumultous event. After strenuous effort, extensive bribery, and physical coer- 
cion, the year 1968 finds the Student Council securing the services of the great and 
unparalleled Indian mystic, Madame Zurini, who will exert her most stupendous pro- 
phetic and psychic powers in tracing the achievements of that famous, that unprece- 
dented, and that unforgettable class of '58. 

Upon entering the booth of Madame Zurini, one is struck with a feeling of the most 
profound and supernatural. The incomparable astrological fortuneteller is sitting with 
a look of utter omniscience on her face. Her shawls of inky black, somber purple, 
and striking red serve only to enhance the mystic mood of the booth, draped in royal 
blue silk and trimmed with countless numbers of glittering stars. 

On a table before her rests the crystal ball, the instrument with which she is able to 
delve into the unknown. 

Appearing on the scene is Mr. Kradel, current ambassador to the Soviet Union who 
has just completed a great diplomatic mission; on a recent journey to the moon he suc- 
cessfully negotiated a treaty between American and Russian forces there. En route to 
Washington, he has stopped in Sheffield to deliver an address to the fair -goers. Parting 
the curtains and entering the booth, he greets Madam Zurini. 

MR. KRADEL: Oh, Madame Zurini, it is indeed an honor to have the opportunity at 
last of meeting you. On behalf of the principal, Mr. Robert Hewins, I wish to wel- 
come you to this school. Mr. Hewins is recuperating from a nervous breakdown due to 
the heavy burden of guiding the development of our youth. 

MADAME ZURINI; I feared that my schedule would not permit my appearance here, 
but upon learning that the renowned millionaire publisher, Elizabeth Schneck, is an 
alumna of this school, I was most happy to come. Of course, you realize that she 
wrote the story of my life. This best-selling biography sells for only $10. 95. 
MR. KRADEL: Well, then, you must know her private secretary, Janet Blakely. 
MADAME ZURINI: Oh yes, both she and Antoinette Hayes are very competent em- 
ployees of Miss Schneck. 

MR. KRADEL: There are several other class members who have become prominent 
figures. You have undoubtedly heard of Debby Shaw, the inventor of the Automatic 
Shoelacer; Janet Olsen, Miss Rheingold of 1965; Roger Newton, Mr. America of 1968; 
Pat Oates, former winner of the Davis Cup and now a professional tennis player; Mar- 
garet Golden, most photogenic of the Powers models; and Carole Williams, the lead- 
ing lady of Broadway. 

Madame Zurini, I would be immensely grateful if you would apply your mystic 
powers to discover the whereabouts of Henry Hubner, my old classmate. 
MADAME ZURINI: For you, Mr. Kradel, I shall be glad to oblige. In fact, I shall 
even favor you with information about some other class acquaintances. Watch care- 
fully. . . within the depths of my crystal ball I see shapes emerging. I see the darkest 
jungles of Africa. There stands Henry Hubner, an elephant driver and guide to a party 
of missionaries, whose destination is the mission settlement of Shirley Keach. Boosting 
the morale of their fellow travelers, Jean Peters, intent upon nursing the sick and needy, 
and Janice Lashoones, whose self -applied task is to teach the natives the art of hair- 
dressing, are enlivening the group with their gaiety. 



MR. KRADEL: Your powers are indeed extraordinary! What you have said surpasses 
anthing I have imagined. 

MADAME ZURINI: But wait! There is more to come. New figures are forming. I 
now see Ringling Brothers Circus. In the biggest ring the undaunted lion tamer, Mar- 
jorie Johnson, is captivating the audience with her breath-taking feats. About to make 
his entrance is Joe Fitzpatrick, the world's funniest clown. Munching some popcorn, 
cowboy Wayne Ovitt is awaiting his cue to ride his horse Thunder into the ring. 
MR. OGDEN: Excuse my interruption. However, as Mayor of Sheffield, I wish to 
welcome Madame Zurini. And what a pleasure to see my old friend, Tom Kradel. 
MR. KRADEL: It certainly is, Mr. Ogden. Madame Zurini has been generous enough 
to divulge news about our former classmates. Perhaps you could tell us of those who 
have remained in this area. 

MR. OGDEN: Among my most ardent political supporters are Lucy Green, Joan Hall, 
and Barbara Amstead. In fact, they took time from their housekeeping chores to act 
as my campaign managers. Peggy Palfini and Mable Johnson both work for station 
WSBS; Peggy hasher own program, "At Home With Peggy, " and Mable is a disk jockey. 
Nick Rutsis, president of the National Mahaiwe Bank, with his financial genius has 
raised the interest rate to 10 per cent. At this school, Ann Riou is working as a phys- 
ical education instructor; Eddie Delmolino's hair is turning white from his experiences 
as a driver education teacher; and Martha French is head of the math department. 
Rufus Barnum is still staunchly defending women's rights. 

I have heard about some of our other friends working in Boston and New York, but 
I'm not sure of their occupations. 

MADAME ZURINI: I believe that I can help clarify this. Oh, yes. .. my crystal ball 
is showing me Boston. There I see Mary Lou Chapin, a sensational torch singer at Al 
Ranzoni's night club. Ed Smith is taking time out from his work with the Boston Red 
Sox to attend the latest concert given by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in which 
Pinkava is an outstanding trumpeter. 

Now, I see New York City. Jack Wells has attained fame as top Santa Claus at 
Macy's, and his sister Shirley is an assistant in the interior decorating department 
there. Deanna Whitehill seems to be the best saleslady in Sak's fur coat department. 
Martha Brock's picture is a popular sight in the Ipana toothpaste ads. 
MR. OGDEN: Have you heard about the terrible murder case? Even Lloyd Hoyt, the 
astute FBI agent, with his helper, Sandra MacDarby, can't help the district attorney, 
Richard Pekrul, in solving it. I understand that they have to bring a marriage counselor, 
Sue Rioux, and a psychologist, Betty Handlowich, into the case. 

MR. KRADEL: I've certainly learned a lot in these few minutes! But now I must be 
on my way to Washington to give my moon report to President Granger. By the way, 
did you know Edward Oleen was the first man to land on the moon? Helen LeGeyt 
organized the details of the journey for him. 

While I'm in Washington, I may very likely meet the President's chauffeur, Jim- 
my Bunce, and the architect of the new White House, Dorene Davenport. Good-bye, 
Madame Zurini.

This year basketball continued to be the favorite spectator sport at Mount Everett. 
Although the team's league standing was somewhat disappointing, the team more than 
compensated for losses to their opponents by their good sportsmanship and their strenuous 
efforts to win. Full support of the team by the cheerleaders and fans increased the high 
morale of the players. In these respects the results can be termed successful.

SOCCER 

During the soccer season relatively inexperienced players steadily developed into 
seasoned players under the able direction of Coach Maghery so that the Mount Everett 
team provided real competition for opposing teams. 




BASEBALL 

The return of several varsity members to the baseball squad promises to make this 
year's baseball team one of the best in Mount Everett history.
